RECYCLE RIGHT PROGRAM
The Recycle Right Program was piloted in three neighborhoods: Deer Park, Shawnee, and Southside. The goal of the program is to reduce recycling contamination and increase the quality of recycled materials so more new products can be made from them.
Residents within the pilot area boundaries:
Received a letter explaining the program.
Had members of our team come through on recycling collection day three or four times and left a tag that indicated if you recycled right or if there were ways you could improve.
Had recycling collected UNLESS there was too much contamination. A red "Oops" tag showed what the problem was if recycling was not collected. Yellow "Oops" tags indicated how to improve.
